RCMP in Bashaw and Stettler have recovered more than $75,000 in stolen property and have laid charges in connection with the case.

Last Monday, Bashaw RCMP arrested Trever Haggkvist, 38, of Mirror for multiple personal and property offences affecting the communities of Bashaw, Stettler and surrounding areas, police said in a news release Thursday.

Haggkvist was scheduled to make an initial appearance in Red Deer Provincial Court last Friday to face six charges of possession of stolen property and one count each of:

— intimidation of a justice-system participant (in relation to a previous charge);

— assault;

— mischief endangering life;

— possession of a firearm without a licence.

During their investigation, Bashaw police officers recovered items estimated to be valued at more than $75,000. Those items include one Bobcat skid-steer, two all-terrain vehicles, one UTV.

“It is believed that these items had been reported stolen in Innisfail, Lacombe, Morningside, Mirror and Erskine,” said Bashaw RCMP Const. Brent Dueck.

Stettler RCMP officers also charged Haggkvist for Stettler-area offences, relating to 13 thefts and one case of mischief.

“This is another great example of the work accomplished by our RCMP officers in their ongoing commitment to keep Alberta communities safer,” said Staff-Sgt. Gord Glasgow of the RCMP Central Alberta District.

“It further highlights the dedication of members from smaller detachments, such as Bashaw and Stettler, who are aware of this individual’s activities and act accordingly through the pursuit of investigations.”

Police are still investigating and seeking additional information from the public for those and any other related offences.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Bashaw or Stettler RCMP detachments or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS (8477).
